Obama cancelled a campaign stop in North Dakota several weeks ago to focus on more critical states more likely to produce electoral votes. In some cases, there is no polling to speak of.
But the Fargo Forum today issued a poll showing Obama with a 45-43 lead over McCain. While that is a statistical dead heat, it has to be unwelcome news to McCain's campaign.
North Dakota only has 3 electoral votes, but a break in one very red state suggests others may be moving as well. The Forum poll and story are at: http://tinyurl.com/3sjko7
